Windows 7: Cannot Map Network Drive to NAS

11 Jan 2013   #11

Win7 Ultimate X64

Yes accounts in same name same pasword and has full access rights, its the same account i use to access locally, i have tried accessing whole drive via \\NAS\Volume_1 and also tried specific folders by adding \folder name but cant get anything to work remotely, TBH most of this stuff was done months ago but i gave up for a while and have just come back to this issue so i cant remember every exact variation i tried

The workgroup name im not so sure about ? will look into that but not gonna be at office til monday will see if i can do it via office computer that i can connect to remotely

I see.

Try the other 2 steps I suggested.

Make sure the Date and Time on the NAS match your PC.

Check to see if you have a WorkGroup name set on the NAS. If you do, Your pc will need to match it
